Construction will start this month for infrastructure to support the delivery of the first stages of residential development at the Northbank Quarter at East Float, Wirral Waters.
Works will see the construction of an ‘upper boardwalk’ pedestrian and cycleway link along the northern dock edge of East Float.
A series of four contemporary squares are also planned, connecting the Dock Road pedestrian and cycleway public realm works to the dock edge.
EWCE has also been appointed to extend a walking and cycling route that marks the boundary of the Northbank neighbourhood.
This work will see construction of 590 metres of shared cycleway and footpath next to the A5139 Dock Road between East Float Apartments and Duke Street.
The contractor will also be undertaking additional landscaping as well as installing boundary fencing, new street lighting columns and digital infrastructure.
Richard Mawdsley, Director of Development at Wirral Waters, said: “We are very pleased to have selected EWCE to undertake the public realm works at the Northbank Quarter at Wirral Waters. EWCE has extensive experience of delivering exceptional quality public realm infrastructure and we look forward to working with them.”
Eric Wright Civil Engineering, Managing Director Diane Bourne said: “We are delighted to be involved in this transformational regeneration project constructing a sustainable transport network and high-quality green environment at Northbank, Wirral Waters.
“It is good to see the creation of a cycling and pedestrian network as an integrated part of the Wirral Waters development.”
